​Lonesome

This song is by Big Bill Broonzy and Washboard Sam and appears on the album Big Bill Broonzy and Washboard Sam (1953).

I got a letter this morning
Made me sad and blue
Said my woman's in trouble
You know I'm in trouble too

That's why I'm so lonesome
Lord and I stay blue all the time
Ah but that's all right
I will overcome some day

I couldn't do nothing
'Cause I was sad and blue
I know there's some' wrong with my baby
And it hurts me too

That's why I'm so lonesome
And I stay blue all the time
Yeah but that's all right
I will overcome some day

Nights are so lonesome
Days are so blue
Just sittin' here rubbin' my hands baby
Wonderin' what happened to you

That's why I'm so lonesome
Lord and I stay blue all the time
Yeah but that's all right
I will overcome some day
